[New Game] PinWar Turns A Friendly Game Of Pinball Into Full-On Multiplayer Warfare

Is your relationship with family and friends a little too good? PinWars can take care of that by taking a nice game of pinball and turning it into a super-competitive button-mashing frenzy. It does look neat, though.

The headlining game mode in PinWar is the two-player setup where each person grabs onto one end of the device – probably a tablet – and taps away to control their flippers. It's kind of like Air Hockey, but with pinball rules. In addition to the human-on-human carnage, there are AI levels to beat, as well as various challenge missions. The intriguing part of PinWar is that the levels aren't just generic pinball tables with different junk in them.

[New Game] Gameloft Launches Total Conquest For Android, Sends Legions Of Gamers To Wage War Online

Caesar's dead, and now Gameloft's calling on gamers to form alliances and go to war over who should rule in his place. Sure, Caesar's death could cause some of us to question whether someone other than a general should have a shot at governance, but now's not the time for such hesitation. This is the time for Total Conquest.

[New Game] Siegecraft Defender Is A Beautiful Tower Defense Game With A Cool Multiplayer Twist

Tower defense has been done, but Crescent Moon Games might have a trick up its sleeve with the new title Siegecraft Defender. This is a 3D tower defense game based on the Unity engine with a conventional, but solid single-player campaign and an innovative multiplayer aspect.

The regular campaign consists of over 30 levels, which the developer claims amounts to about 10 hours of gameplay. The basic mechanics on display are on the safe side. You place towers on the battlefield to guide the enemies around for maximum damage while they try to reach your castle. It's a bit like Fieldrunners in that respect.

[New Game] The Respawnables Exits Limited Beta, Brings Free Multiplayer Shooting To The Play Store

When it comes to video games, all soldiers are expendable. But when it comes to online multiplayer shooters, they're also respawnable. That's right, there's no ambiguity in Zynga's latest title. The Respawnables is an action-packed shooter with pick-up-and-play multiplayer modes. This game was in a limited beta, but now it's found its way into the Play Store, and it doesn't cost a dime.

[New Game] Spaceteam: The Multiplayer Star Trek Shouting Simulator Endorsed By His HOLOness Matias Duarte

Remember that one Star Trek space battle scene? You know, the one where the captain is wiggling around in his chair while the camera shakes, and all the bridge officers are shouting things at him? "Hull breaches on decks five through eight!" "Reversing the shield polarity, sir!" "We're running low on self-sealing stem bolts!" You know.... every Star Trek space battle scene? Now there's an Android game that captures the feel of a space battle from the perspective of the shouting bridge crew. It's multiplayer. There are switches. And lots of shouting.

The idea behind Spaceteam is sort of a more casual version of ARTEMIS.
